WMF Festival 2020 – Cancelled


Dear WMF 2020 artists and collaborators,

Wakkerstroom Music Festival 2020 cancelled

After careful consideration of the ongoing spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) overseas and in South Africa as well as abiding by the requirements announced in the government statement on measures to combat the pandemic, the WMF Management and Planning committee arrived at the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Wakkerstroom Music Festival that was scheduled to take place from 19th to 22nd March. We took this decision keeping in mind the current coronavirus situation and taking into account the health and well-being of our audiences, artists and the people of Wakkerstroom. The WMF 2020 is cancelled until further notice depending on government decisions.

We extend our deepest appreciation and thanks to all the individuals who have already invested hours of their time in preparation of the 2020 WMF. We sincerely hope that you all stay safe and healthy in these challenging times.

Kindest regards


(on behalf of the WMF Management)
